Special Instructions:

Using theoretical lenses that include life-course and feminist theory, intersectionality, and the constructs of structural violence & structural vulnerability, we will explore selected topics in the gender- and family violence field, examining the underlying mechanisms that contribute to inequities in health and well-being. Our goal will be to understand these topics from a solution-focused and multidisciplinary perspective, with an eye towards the development of public health strategies using a social/community and equity lens. We will also consider how strategies that address these issues are shaped by the intersection of public health evidence and politics. Course Information: May be repeated.
